Czech town welcomes wastewater treatment installation
The completed system, which will be fed by the town’s new sewer network, will significantly improve the quality of the local streams and fishing ponds and ensure they meet the environmental standards set out by the EU.
Ensuring compliant wastewater treatment post-lockdown
By taking some simple steps in advance of re-opening, talking to WPL or your supplier directly, as well as engaging with accredited service providers, businesses can be confident their plants will be able to treat effluent to required standards when doors open.
Working to keep essential wastewater services flowing
Managing director Gareth Jones said: “As a wastewater services provider, health and safety is always our absolute priority and customers can be assured we have taken all necessary steps to keep our treatment plants running safely and effectively during these uncertain times.”
Double Scottish wastewater win for WPL
Onsite wastewater treatment specialist WPL has seen an upswing in contracts awarded through its Scottish Water framework in the last 12 months. The largest of two recent contracts is for the purchase of WPL Hybrid-SAF technology to be installed initially on the Winchburgh expansion project.
Simple steps to keep onsite treatment within consent
The regulator’s toughening approach to discharge permit breaches, a number of high profile prosecutions and record fines for polluters, along with increased public awareness, means customers are demanding more from their water utilities.
Director put forward for chair of British Water’s Technical Forum
Andrew would like to see closer engagement with British Water members, so the forum can grow, become even more inclusive and have a greater influence on policy and decision making, creating positive, tangible change for those in the supply chain.
Utilities urged to share data with suppliers
Huge benefits are available to those water companies prepared to share data with the companies designing their wastewater treatment plants. By having sight of specific site data ahead of a project’s design, as well as operational information post-completion, manufacturers and suppliers can ensure the best site specific system is installed and that it is operating optimally.
Harnessing the benefits of process patents
The patented technology employs a submerged moving-bed, fixed-film reactor which can treat wastewater with greater energy efficiency compared to traditional submerged aerated filters (SAFs), in a tighter site footprint whilst meeting environmental compliance.
